Click here or on the Model Expo Flyer to see details of the largest Model Show on the calendar. Model Expo 2020 is the cream of modelling events and one not to be missed.
This event has plenty to see and do and also lots to spend your money on, which I am sure many other halves would say that its a good reason not to go – mmmmm – I dont think so!
There are too many categories to mention with each one carrying a huge number of entries. This is a 3 day event that is put together by a group of tireless volunteers who year after year deliver a great show. The venue itself is massive and includes a vast array of competition tables, modelling traders and a well catered for food area. The event also attracts a number of special interest groups such as the Victorian Armoured RC club, who offer another perspective of related interests.
On the Monday there is a super sized Swap & Sell that has recently moved into a much larger and brighter area which is separate from the completion space. The number of second hand kits up for grabs is massive, and really adds to the fun and excitement of Model Expo.
Every year the number of entries has increased, which is a great sign that the hobby is truly alive. The quality, creativity and skill levels just keeps growing which makes this a formidable event, so please make sure you come along and enjoy whats on offer.
Here is the first event for the year and its a must attend to get your taste of modelling at its best.
Confirmed Traders so far are:
- Wargames Miniatures
- SMS Paints
- Spec Mod
With hopefully another one or two to be added
The special theme for this years Golden Sprocket & Golden Wing awards are anything Vietnam, build to IPMS Out of Box Rules.
This will be a great show so make sure you can come along!
Arrrhhhh………..finally we are back on this Sunday 2nd, for the beginning of the 2020 club calendar year. It would be a great opportunity to bring along anything you got from Santa, purchased since or last meeting or anything you have been working on. We love to see whats on your bench and hear the pain and the wins along the way for your current or completed projects.
This years looks to be interesting with a whole bunch of kits to be released, infact too many to mention so here’s a link to check out to see whats coming. WingNut Wings have a few beauties that are not too far away so keep an eye out for these:
Warbirds continues to be a inclusive group of like minded people with a predominant focus on aircraft. We also understand that we all build and love other genres of model kits, and as a result we are open to seeing anything else that might be sitting alongside your aircraft.
Modelling is a hobby that can consume a huge amount of time and a hobby that we get a lot of enjoyment from. Its not just the building its also about the research, the book library and all those necessary products that make model building a real joy.
Our passion for the hobby brings us together as a club and creates a healthy environment where we can all share what we love to do. I look forward to the new year and to seeing you all again.
Please check our new meeting dates for 2020, which have been posted under Memberships & Meetings.
We look forward to seeing you all during the year and no doubt there will be a lots of new releases and modelling news along the way.
Please remember to check back here for whats going on at Warbirds!
This will be our last meeting of the year so will be an opportunity to close the year on a high. There will be much to chat about especially regarding the Santa list and what the new year may hold.
Dont forget to bring along anything new or in progress builds as well as something to work on during the meeting.
Cheers and see you all there!
We are on again this Sunday at our usual location, so be prepared for an informative and fun meeting. This will be our second last meeting of the year and we will be locking in our Model Expo club display theme for 2020 and of course enjoying our successful format.
Don’t forget to bring along anything new, kits in progress and any modelling you wish to chip away at during the meeting.
See you all there!
We are meeting again this Sunday so come along and enjoy the fun. By the way this meeting was scheduled a week later than usual due to Fathers Day last weekend.
Our meeting location is currently under going audio visual upgrades but our meeting room will not be impacted. Its great to see that the library ensures that our facilities are kept functional and operational, so maybe some time soon we may make use of this equipment – movies, holiday slide shows etc.
We recently had a great weekend at our holiday retreat at Phillip Island so it will be great to recap to finer moments and modelling successes.
The AGM last month went along really well. We have a changing of the guard with Martin Reid stepping into the Presidents role and Mark Bujega taking on the Vice Presidents role. We wish both of these gentlemen the best of luck and look forward to new ideas and a fresh approach for the club.
See you all there.
